John McBlain Column: NOSTRIL DAMN US.
IN THE run up to the BBC's Red Nose Day in aid of Comic Relief, the people of Northern Ireland are doing what comes naturally, i.e. splitting up into bitterly divided factions.
Comedic splinter groups that have already expressed an intention to stage their own fund-raising activities, which include:
The Apprentice Boys: Who will participate in the Comic relief of Derry;
Sinn Fein: The Shinners will be holding a Green Nose Day when hundreds of republicans are expected to picket;
Fans of Glasgow Rangers: Who will be taking part in Blue Nose Day;
The Ulster Independence Movement: Their fundraising efforts will go towards Red Hand Relief;
Supporters of David Trimble: Who will raise funds for their leader by emulating his complexion on Red Face Day;
The DUP: Whose rural membership will be celebrating Red Neck Day;
Belfast's Journalists: They will, for one abstemious day only, try to avoid the possession of a red nose.
